Ongoing monarch migration in Ohio
COLUMBUS — Eastern monarch butterflies now fly across Ohio between summer breeding grounds and wintering grounds in Mexico, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Wildlife Division. Monarchs can travel 50 to 100 miles a day, and the journey can take them thousands of miles before they reach their destination.
Migratory monarchs depend on adequate food resources throughout their journey. Look for monarchs in forests, fields, gardens, and waterways as they migrate through Ohio. Migrants can travel individually or in groups.
Monarch butterflies are in decline, along with many other pollinating insects, primarily due to the loss of grassland and grassy habitats. One of the most important ways to help declining butterflies and other pollinators is to keep tracts of unmown grassland. The Division of Wildlife manages the habitat in many wildlife areas in the state of Ohio to provide these grasslands which provide nectar-producing plants.
People can play a role in supporting monarch butterflies by planting milkweed. Milkweed is the only host plant for monarchs. Early fall is the perfect time to collect milkweed pods from the landscape and plant the seeds.
